Puzzles to Remember
I am happy to report that today 12 additional large boxes filled with puzzles were packed to be shipped for the use of Alzheimer’s patients. About 5 of these are being sent to Adult Day Care Centers. Six boxes are being sent to long term care facilities that care for Alzheimer’s patients.
With the remaining box I am trying something new. The box is being sent to an individual Alzheimer’s patient. The patient’s daughter contacted me and told me how much enjoyment her mom receives from doing puzzles. I agreed to send her puzzles as long as, when her mom is finished with the puzzles, she will pass the puzzles along to an Alzheimer’s facility that I identify in her area. I am delighted that these puzzles will actually be doing double duty!
